the hottie I get to call my husband and wish a happy birthday...super suave...
If there's not something in various stages of disassembly I don't think he's happy. Recently he got super overjoyed when his computer stopped working. First he got a mother board, chip set,
invidia graphics card, power supply unit,
pulled an internal chassis speaker from an old computer and had to modify it to make it compatible, an operating system,
RAM sticks and viola...oh my gosh, it totally works-go figure. He has a brand new computer and had the enjoyment of taking it apart and putting it back together. He's my own personal cuddly multi-purpose tool. Like he says..."if the Navy trusts me with $2 billion nuclear submarines you can trust me with you......"

Besides ultra-cool blue collar genius, he has stellar intelligence,
is a top notch dad completely adored by his kids,
has an interesting sense of humor,
and is a major cubie savant.

What more could one ask for??

A Bit of Maryland History

My Dad took another cool field trip to Tudor Hall, the family home of John Wiles Booth in Harford County.

Janius Brutus Booth, an London actor emigrated to America in 1821. Janius Booth settled on this property because of the pure water spring. The original house was a log cabin. Tudor Hall was built in 1847 by James Gifford who also built Ford's Theater where Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865 by John Wilkes Booth. John Wiles was supposed to have practiced Romeo and Juliet from the balcony of the house. The Booth family had a winter home in Baltimore City in the Old Town near Hones Falls, that row home is now gone.

The Booth family is buried in the historic Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore.

The end and beginning

Cloud looks like a hand to the kids
enjoying the last loud New Year's Eve,
the obnoxious Chinese firecrackers we will all miss,
Whenever we go anywhere the kids in the neighborhood all want to come along-even if it's just for a walk. We headed to the shops and they wanted to ride the trolley.
